The Morrison is a great bar with really good dining options. We love their Wednesday night $1 oyster special. Their oyster library is an extensive list of fresh oysters from around Australia. We are here on a busy Thursday night, with many of the patrons enjoying after work drinks and having a good time. The DJ is pumping out tunes in the front bar.
We made our way to the restaurant dining room which is a large open space with plenty of seating. The dining room has a glass roof so you can appreciate the architecture of the surrounding buildings. There were number of work functions booked, which is understandable at this time of year with good value set menus offered at this restaurant. I recommend making a booking, just incase.
We were greeted by the waiter for the evening Arnaud who provided us with amazing service, he was attentive, personable and informative. Being a bar, of course they had a grat drinks list, with their cocktails being a highlight. In particular we enjoyed the Grand Morrison and the Banana Old Fasioned.
Browsing the menu, their pigfish specials menu sparked our intrest. We ordered their version of oysters Kilpatrick with pork scratching mullet bottarga and Yorkshire relish. The oysters were presented nicely and tasted just as nice. We also ordered the crisp spiced pork and XO tacos a great starter fresh and very flavoursome. We shared the delicious Saltimbocca prawns. Prawns which were wrapped in proscuitto and came with a nice prawn reduction mayo. We also shared the wings and tails; The seasoned and crumbed tender meat of the pigs tail and southern fried king fish wings(fins) were melt in your mouth and were even better when combined with the green sauce(chimichurri).
For our main we ordered the bacon chop cooked over coals, served on the bone and a side of brussel sprouts. If you like bacon you will love the bacon pork chop, even better add crackling to the equation and and a creamy mushroom sauce. I remember as a kid comlaining about having to eat brussel sprouts. I have come a long way since then, the side of brussel sprouts cooked in balsamic were very tasty.
The Morrison is a top venue to for a meal and for a few beverages.
